I walk alongside people and teams as a counsellor, educator, supervisor and mentor. My approach is collaborative and pragmatic, and appreciates the political, social, cultural and environmental contexts of people’s lives.
People consult with me about wide-ranging concerns - for example:
• sustaining wellbeing and resilience in challenging contexts
• recovering and healing from trauma
• engaging in redress related to institutional abuse
• navigating change
• addressing burnout and vicarious trauma
• responding to climate chaos and environmental destruction
I also support service providers and organisations with debriefing, supervision, trauma-informed practice, and sustaining resilience when working in challenging contexts - for example:
• teams implementing redress programs for institutional abuse
• health professionals
• Aboriginal services
• staff in community agencies
• social justice and advocacy groups

I tailor my services to the specific circumstances, preferences and hopes of each person and organisation, drawing upon a diverse skillset.
I am a perpetual student with several qualifications and also regularly attend professional trainings to keep up to date and expand expertise. Due to the diversity of contexts in which I work I consult with several supervisors including cultural and clinical guidance from Aboriginal mentors.
I teach and present in diverse contexts, e.g. working with survivors of complex trauma, trauma-informed clinical skills, sustaining wellbeing and resilience, psychology of climate breakdown.
I have held service delivery, management and board roles across health, government, education, community, legal and professional services organisations. Please see my LinkedIn profile for further details: www.linkedin.com/in/merleconyer
